Winter of the World PDF the massive second volume of the trilogy, opens in the critical year of 1933. On the back cover of Suzanne Collin's book are these words: "In the ruins of a place once known as North America .
This is an ultra short book, with tons of unnecessary information that I came to believe was included to get the page count to publication length, that doesn’t AT ALL go into anything to do with the Hunger Games and God. As a Christian and a teacher I would have expected a tact bout how a soulless world where God was conspicuously absent would be like this hopeless, vile place where decadence and selfishness are pervasive and then move towards how the Hunger Games is a great starting point in apologetic conversations about what it would really mean to have a world without God.
This book, or pamphlet, is a mess of ideas that aren’t terrible but aren’t about the Hunger Games. Shame on Christian publishers for capitalizing on the success of the Hunger Games and rushing a sub-par book to print.
Finding God in the Hunger Games by Ken Gire is an attempt to gain something other than entertainment out of the blockbuster book and film, The Hunger Games. I have seen many of this type of book before and I always wondered what obscure insights they had on films that are clearly not Christian influenced at all. I really enjoyed the film when I saw it several months ago but at no stage did I think there were any Christian morals to come out of it, which is why I was surprised when I saw this book. Although this book does have some fascinating comments in it about the world today, it is not a book I would recommend to my friends unless they were really involved in The Hunger Games. This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. I was very skeptical when it came to listening to this book, as I have watched The Hunger Games, and couldn’t find any spiritual parallels, as this is our families habit after watching a movie together – but we had nothing!
It was good then to know that Ken also had trouble initially, until he remembered the book of Esther, where God is not anywhere in that book, but at the same time God is everywhere in that book.
If you are looking for a shadow of Jesus in this book you might have trouble, but if you look for ways that it speaks to the state of our contemporary culture in contrast to the redeemed culture of those who are in Christ – then you will see a lot.
As movies, DVD’s, online video, and TV shows are modern-day pulpits where the message of the culture of the world are being preached to us and those around us all the time, it is good to be able to show these things to those that we are reaching out to, from the medium that they are enjoying, and can clearly see.
I had the privilege of listening to this book as part of christianaudio's reviewer program.
I have finished listening to a book called Finding God in The Hunger Games by Ken Gire and read by David Cochran Heath. The narrator David Cochran Heath did a good job, and I had no problem listening to him read. This audio book was provided to me by christianaudio Reviewers Program for my honest review. It’s with that assertion that Gire opens his book, about the theology he finds in the recent movie (and book trilogy), The Hunger Games.


Really the title of this book should have been called Finding Ourselves in The Hunger Games, because most of the book is an examination of human nature more than anything else. I should mention that this book is focused much more on the film version than the original novel. Gire readily admits that God is conspicuously missing from the whole Hunger Games world—just like the biblical book of Esther, he also points out. Also, Gire does recognize one important truth: Katniss Everdeen is a truly unique heroine, in both film and literature alike. David Cochran Heath does a fine job narrating, and you could do a lot worse than giving this short book a listen.

Like many sermon series that take a cultural meme and form a sermon series around this meme, without really dealing with it. The author is primarily interacting with the movie and even said he has not finished reading the book before watching the movie.

Against the backdrop of a worldwide Depression that has resulted in widespread unemployment, Hitler and his party assume complete control over Germany. We are clandestine observers in a German hospital for disabled children and aged adults, admitted for experimental treatments. It makes the biggest tectonic shifts of its era — the struggle between Communism and Fascism, the irreversible march of science toward nuclear weapons, the laying of groundwork for the coming cold war — feel momentous indeed.
Like the Philosophy of the Simpsons where the authors break down the actions taken by the characters in that show to decompress the philosophies behind the actions? In fact, the author early on states that there is NO connection between the Hunger Games and God.
Let me give you an example of what you can connect in short form: Panem, where the story in the Hunger Games takes place, means “bread” in Latin, which is the language of the Romans, which persecuted Christians and had the circus, which is where Christians died, which reminds us that we will all die, which brings up the End Times, which makes me scratch my head about what the heck is going on! This isn’t exegesis (finding God in the Hunger Games,) or even eisegesis (writing God into the Hunger Games).
It is evident early on in this short book that there are very few Christian aspects to be gleaned from the film but the author does raise some interesting social commentaries based on the content of the film. I understand writing books on series like Narnia and to some extend The Lord of the Rings but books on other films just seem like a waste of time to me.


The author does summarise parts of the film quite well and his social commentary of the world today was thought-provoking but it is not a book I will probably read again as it is a bit lacking in substance. He explicitly indicates that his book is based off the recent Hollywood blockbuster, not the popular written form. Heath’s auditory presence is booming, giving the listener an attention-demanding voice to follow by.
Wasting no time, Follett launches into a vivid and disturbing account of the methods by which Hitler and his brownshirts consolidate their power: destroying newspaper offices, brutalizing political opponents and ignoring traditional parliamentary procedures, all the while exploiting a streak of virulent anti-Semitism. We look over the shoulder of a code breaker seeking to break cyphers from Japanese warships as they crawl across the Pacific toward Pearl Harbor. So it would be surprising if this second installment did not prove to be the most powerful part of Mr.

Each of those topics are covered in depth but nothing at all about God in the Hunger Games. Gire does not intend to critique investigations into the theology of this book, nor is it to create argument, but only to share how Gire views G-d in this movie, of which he’s positive it is blindingly obvious. Overall, Heath’s narration is slightly ill-fitted, not matching the conversational tone that the writer presents, but rather a fast-paced presentational tone expected at a speaker convention.
And yet, the image of God still resides in us, offering hope.First, Ken Gire looks back at the first hunger games with the rise of the godless emperor, Nero, and the games he hosted in Rome, where he offered free food and entertainment to the populace.
Nevertheless, Heath is artful in his attempt, and many audiobook listeners will find this a fair pairing.
This glimpse into the future is based on Jesus' Olivet Discourse and his view of how society will deteriorate to a form of barbarism and totalitarianism in the end times.The book ends with a call to be alert to what is taking place in the world and to stand resolute against the forces that appeal to our baser instincts, looking forward to the glorious return of Jesus Christ.
